#1 of 1 2007 VW Eos 2.0T Purchasing Inquiry
Aug 28, 2011 (2:45 pm)
Hello, I am trying to figure out if I should purchase this vehicle. I went into my local VW dealer and saw this Eos sitting in the lot and I absolutely loved it. I asked for a carfax report and the maintenance records and I found some interesting things. Upon further investigation from this website I found some of the same minor problems in this vehicle that was repairs they are as follows:
at about 5,000 the previous owner had a faulty window regulator replaced on the front passenger side
at about 20,000 miles the vehicle started to run rough but the vw mechanics didn't find anything wrong, but did find the low fuel pressure sensor was faulty and replaced it
also at about 21,000 they replaced the a/c pollen filter
at 23,000 there was an 03 recall??
at 27,000 completed an 05 Recall?? replaced sensor
at 30,000 battery had to be replaced
at 31,000 crankcase breather valve was replaced
at 31,500 replaced driverside window regulator and found noise rattling to be fuel line in door, part had to be ordered
at 35,000 roof started to leak from pillars had resealling work done
at 40,000 convertible top stopped working had to perform battery midtronics test found low voltage repaired also replaced spark plugs
at 43,000 squeal found in engine, found drive belt tensioner was replaced also replaced ignition coils
also it seemed that everytime the previous owner went to take it in for an oil change it was $100 is that typical? I'd love some answers on this before making a desicion to buy it. They want $20,000 for it.
